The Coral Lip

The Coral Lip

posted on: 5.16.2012

If there is one thing I love about the spring and summer, it's the resurrection of the coral lip. Long gone are the fall and winter burgundy and red lips, and in come the bright orange and coral-hued lips. It's an obsession of mine, really. I've tried many coral lipsticks over the past year, and today I am here to share with you my top five favorite coral lipsticks.
[1- revlon lip butter in tutti frutti; 2- makeup forever rouge artist intense in 39; 3- mac lipstick in vegas volt; 4- urban decay super saturated high gloss lip color in punch drunk; revlon colorburst lipstick in coral]

Out of the five lipsticks swatched above, only the last two are true corals, in my opinion. If you're looking for a nice coral lipstick that will sit well on the lips and moisturize, I highly recommend Revlon's Lip Butters. I picked up three of them the other day while perusing the aisles of Ulta, and I'm slightly obsessed. It adds the slightest coral color to your pout, and is great for those who aren't ready to wear a full-throttle coral (like the last two!). 

The Makeup Forever lipstick is a bit on the dry side, so if you have chapped lips, avoid this lipstick. It looks great under a lipgloss, though. I layer this lipstick a lot. The MAC lipstick is a great shade as well, as it is a great medium between orange and pink. This is definitely a summer favorite for me. 

The Urban Decay and Revlon lipsticks, like mentioned before, are the only true corals in the group. The Urban Decay is more orange than the Revlon lipstick, but these are great dupes. If you aren't willing to spend $19 on the Urban Decay lip pencil, then definitely get the Revlon lipstick. Both are long-lasting and don't dry out the lips. Both are fabulous!

From this list I've excluded some of the pinky-corals I own. That will be a post for another day! What are your favorite coral lipsticks?


  1. I really want a Revlon lip butter! I had my eye on tutti frutti :P
    Have you tried Rimmel's moisture renew lipstick in 600 soft coral? It's a beautiful pinky coral colour - my everyday lipstick!

    1. I've never tried any of Rimmel's lip products! I'll definitely have to check it out- thanks for the recommendation!
